For people looking for a roof carrier for XUV, below is a very eye-pleasing option to explore. It seems to be retrofitted maintaining original look of the car. Only problem is - I am unable to source it from anywhere in Delhi-NCR. The pics are from suncardecors.com webpage.

This is definitely looking awesum. It looks handily detachable to me. Is it ? Usually the roof carriers kill the look, despite being an absolute necessity in xuv. Thanks a ton for the share and do let me know if you are able to source it in delhi ncr

A much awaited review is finally here. Brilliant comparison there folks and this precisely gives the new buyer a complete story of what he can expect in the updated version. The way, the old and the new XUV was compared is excellent. I have been waiting to get myself and my family a MUV/SUV and now the wait is for the new Innova to launch. Mahindra's have come a long way but the little things that they do not pay attention to still holds me back. Hopefully a test drive this weekend would keep my assumptions to rest. But my head still says "Wait for the Innova"

3. Brightness level can be adjusted, its fairly visible during a sunny day as well.
4. It will make a warning beep everytime the vehicle crosses 100kph.
5. Speed warning alert.
Does someone have any pics of the headsup display? I am not sure which accessory this is and whats the price point?

Exactly what I was looking for fusionbang. Thanks a lot. Sadly none of the staff in the Service centre seems to have a clue about what the Handirack is. Even the guys who look after the accessories were clueless.
Gotta show this video to them.

Typically dealers do the reset at the time of delivery and give a car with zero on the odo to the happy owner.
Thanks SDP for clarifying

Thanks for the pic Tanveer. Is this your car? When did you take delivery? Also can you post a detailed review on the heads up display. I was contemplating on the same, but I have couple of doubts

1. Does it display only the speed of the vehicle or any other parameters?
2. How is it connected and placed on the dashboard? Is it connected to the 12V socket or directly to any of the wiring?
3. Also can you post different pics for day & night?

Thanks in advance!

Hello, Yes its my car, i had taken the delivery on monday also being the same day this lovely review went live. Will post a detailed review as well in my upcoming ownership thread soon.

1. It shows speed mainly, but there is an option called as "Data" in the menu, selecting it shows 2 different kind of numbers which i am yet to figure out what they are.
2. Its connected directly in the wiring so no 12V socket is used and also the speed which is displayed is almost what the speedometer shows, so it doesn't work on GPS.
3. I will do that by today evening.

Also attaching a pic of both my beasts together.

@tanveer_2558, nice pic there. And of course same registration number on both of them . Orange is actually looking elegant here, though I thought it might look garish when I only saw it in brochure.

Hi Tanveer. Congrats on the purchase of the XUV500. Those rain soaked beasts you have there look fabulous.

And I love how the new XUV500 looks just as modern as the Jetta. The Jetta is one of my favorite executive sedans and the color is just amazing. Can you please share your experience of driving, handling and ride of the XUV with respect to your Jetta? Also, I am waiting for your ownership thread and of course more pics.

Hello, thank you very much.
Yes orange or as mahindra named it as sunset orange has a few different looks in different lighting conditions, inside the showroom under the spot lights the car was shining and sparkling just too much, outside on an overcast day the colour just seems elegant like you said and on a sunny day it at times looks a tad too bright for my taste, but eventually i have started liking the color specially when you view it from the aerial view, the black sunroof compliments the color very well.

Hello, thank you very much for the appreciation.
My ownership thread for the jetta is almost ready which does have a little bit of comparison but i shall detail about it when i start writing the ownership for the new age xuv soon
Comparing both car's for now all i would like to say is, I am having a very difficult time in selecting one car to drive everyday

@ Mods: Really sorry for the back to back post, i saw karthick's post later on and for some reason the edit option is not visible for me in my previous post and also i cannot upload pictures from the Teambhp app, gives's me some sort of security error.

First of all congrats on your new acquisition. Both the cars look great and are a contrast in color and character as well. It will surely be good to hear your views comparing the two.

Regarding the HUD, it seems more after market and gimmicky to me. Any real value you see with it? I didnt like the open wire that can be seen in your picture.

Thanks! Yes 2 different cars with different color's.

I do a lot of night drive (at times even the whole night) It would be helpfull for me that time to keep my speed under control also the speed can be seen by the passenger next to the drivers seat as well so my dad can always keep a check on me easily too
The wire can be seen only if you put your head above the steering wheel, its not visible from anywhere else. Its not a really important thing to have, but a nice addon to have and looks pretty cool in the night too.
